MOMpreneur Success

Dec 13, 2021

“You got to start with your mind first. And then you execute. And with that execution, each part is a little step. And so that's why I tell people, you gotta keep going. There are days, you're not going to feel like doing it, or you really don't have the time because things happen.” - R. Nicole Sharp

Welcome to the MOMpreneur Success Podcast with Denise Fernander. In this episode, we have a special guest, serial entrepreneur R. Nicole Sharp! She discusses what it takes to execute - establishing a strong mental fortitude and committing ourselves even to the small tasks. Let’s get into it!

Since leaving Corporate America, R. Nicole decided to become “slash/slashie” entrepreneur. You’re  probably asking.... “What is a Slash/Slashie entrepreneur?” A slash/slashie entrepreneur is a serial  profitable entrepreneur. She decided to turn her fashion passion projects into money generating  businesses. She is the owner of a consulting firm (government and small business), a shoemaker/cobbler, shoe designer, travel bag designer for (Consulting Firm- Griffin Consulting Partners,  LLC / R. Nicole , Shoes - R. Nicole Collection, & Travel Bag – Tashka Store). 

After working in the film & tv industry, she went to grad school & listened to her mom to work with the federal government. As a kid, R. Nicole dreamed of becoming designer but never thought it was possible as a job. R. Nicole designs shoes for women that are members of organizations and that love colorful shoes. While working in Corporate America, R. Nicole would travel often for work and she found it difficult to  pack suits, travel clothes, gym clothes...all in one bag. She searched the market for a carryon that would  accommodate a traveler like her, but she could not find anything… so she designed and patent a travel  bag. Her products have been featured on STEAM Program for Girls in Tech, Amazon Web Services, Fox 5  “Good Day DC”, Founders Gym, Kontrol Magazine, Yahoo News, LA Wire, NY Wire, Daily Herald,  Medium, NY Weekly, and a few podcasts.
